Albert Turner oral history interview, part 2 of 6, October 23, 2005
Turner talks more about growing up in Hawaii, including being a part of the boy scouts. After this he jumps forward and speaks about his marriage background. Next, he talks about his father, as he was in the National Guard and would be summoned back into military service during World War Two, with a rank of Lieutenant Colonel. Turner then speaks about his whereabouts during the attacks on Pearl Harbor, wondering if they were doing maneuvers or not, as he saw planes flying overhead. He would end up not seeing his father for a couple of weeks and staying at Schofield Barracks until things cleared up. After that, he would head back home but see the carnage that had been done at Pearl Harbor and constantly hear calls for doctors over the radio.
